Thanks for sharing this clever design.
I bought the track locally at Woodcraft
has a killer deal this week though, 1/2 the price I payed plus it includes knobs...
I considered TIG welding the uprights on, but they are made from 1/16" wall aluminum. I had a feeling that the forces would tear the weld loose, so I mounted a block of hardwood inside the uprights and screwed it all together using stainless steel screws.
All the aluminum stock was scrap that I had saved. There is one small error in each base that I just discovered tonight. It doesn't affect the functionality, but it bugs me that I made such a silly mistake on the vertical mill
